Listening 3 months left, where should I be?

HI everyone i'm freaking out.

I have 3 months till my exam and this is where I'm at..

In the middle of my second read of kaplan along side my first read of FA. I've been doing kaplan q bank a block here and there but haven't really started with proper Uworld questions.

my question is ....WHAT SHOULD I DO?? should i start uworld right away or wait until i finish with my first read of first aid?? aaaah i'm so worriedd.. please help me!!! do I have enough time to go through first aid at least 4 times??? right now i'm going slow cuz im writing down imp notes from kaplan to first aid.
please if anybody can give me some reassurance that would be great!!!!
thanks

just continue ur 2nd read of kaplan with proper Qbank mcqs & try to do it within one month with read of 1st aid.. after a month then go for uworld and make uworld edition in 1st aid ,complete ur uworld in 2nd month & then in last month do ur NBME & two reads of 1st aid.. I know its seem to be tough but it is achievable....
